SUMMARY Block-diagonalization of the machine-component incidence matrix is the first step in the implementation of group technology. Even powerful algorithms will fail to achieve this if the matrix itself is not amenable to block-diagonalization. The present work analyses the properties of the matrix and identifies the standard deviation of the pairwise similarities (Jaccard7rpar; of the vectors as the major factor that decides the groupability of the data set. Many data sets ranging from the… CONTINUE READING
